Buffering Opposable In Doomben 10,000 With Sportsbet Offer
May 22, 2014
Treble course winner Buffering is a warm favourite for Saturday’s Doomben 10,000, but punters can readily take on the mount of Damien Browne with Sportsbet’s free bet offer.
Third past the post over course and distance in the BTC Cup a fortnight ago, Buffering heads into to the Doomben 10,000 with solid claims at $4.00 with Sportsbet, while runner up Spirit of Boom can be backed at a more enticing $5.50.
Surprisingly Famous Seamus has not attracted much support at $7.50 in the betting despite being a Group 1 winner last time out as punters are perhaps a little skeptical as to whether the five-year-old can follow up his BTC Cup triumph. Knoydart has been well backed this week returning to action following an extra two weeks off and is now as short as $10.00, while Rebel Dane is also fresh and comes in at a top price of $5.50 with Sportsbet.
Whichever horse you plump for, Sportsbet have a free bet offer to add a level of insurance to your bet. Stake up to $100 with your first bet on the Doomben 10,000 and if your horse comes 2nd or 3rd, Sportsbet will give you your money back as a bonus bet up to a maximum of $100.
Most bookmakers will stretch to a money back offer on the 2nd placed horse, but Sportsbet are once again going that extra mile for the Doomben 10,000 with money back if your horse runs second or third in the $650,000 showpiece.
